That’s right, it’s Stainless Steel Droppings! Run by Carl V. Anderson, this blog includes book and movie reviews, as well as interviews.  Its main focus is science fiction and fantasy. It also hosts some reading challenges.

Right now, it’s hosting the 2014 Sci-Fi Experience, which I am participating in.  Many blogs are joining in and posting their science fiction book reviews and more.  I really enjoy this event.

The most recent review is a movie review.  And that’s the new Hobbit movie, The Desolation of Smaug.

Reading Challenge in Danger!

Last year, I set a Goodreads reading challenge of 12 books.  That’s one a month.  I read 14.  This year, I set the reading challenge at 25 books.  Well, there are only 2 weeks to go…

readingchallengeI have 4 books to go!  I’m behind schedule by a lot.  Thankfully, I’m finishing my current book soon, and my next 2 books are fairly easy and quick to read.  I should make 24 at least.  I also have an art book I’m reading at home.  It’s mostly pictures, so if I apply myself to reading, I should be able to finish the challenge.  At least I hope.  But next year, I plan to try for 30 books.

Anyone else have a reading challenge this year?
